Grand Master Owens
Leader of the City Watch
Weakness: Arrogant – Having or displaying a sense of overbearing self-worth or self-importance. Inclined to social exclusiveness, rebuffs the advances of people considered inferior. Snobbish.
Need: To grow a heart, he treats the people he is sworn to protect like cattle.
Desire: To protect the people from all threats, foriegn and domestic in his city. He is the best and will not have his image tarnished. He punishes hard and swift.
Enemy: A specific criminal he hasn’t been able to catch yet. Each time the criminal strikes again makes Owens look bad.
Secret: Owens secretly tries to cover up all instances of the criminal he is hunting from going public. At times he will even frame drunks and other lowlives instead making a public scene of him catching them assuring the public the matter has been dealt with and hang the framed men in the morning.
Rumor: Owens used to work in the imperial city’s guard and got in trouble for some unknown reason causing him to relocate to here.
Passion: Every morning Owens jogs around the keep to stay in shape, at 6AM he duels to the death with at least 1 person with comedic ease and usually in one blow. Owens has made it public knowledge that anyone can fight him if they make an appointment with his secretary ahead of time. These duels are legal, to the death, no guns, bows, or magic allowed. Owens has made many disgruntled enemies over the years who travel far and never runs out of people to duel each morning. Need to speak to the Grand Master? I’m sorry he is a very busy man, perhaps if you go to the courtyard in the morning at 6AM you can speak with him while he duels.
Weakness: Meddlesome – Intrusive in a meddling or offensive manner, given to meddling; interfering.
Need: Wealth, he has dozens of investment properties he needs to go up in value before he can begin to see a profit. He has been losing money for years.
Desire: To lend money to homeowners outside the keep in exchange for the title to their land. He lets the people he lends money to continue to stay and live in their homes at an affordable rent making the low income residence see him as a savior. Got a problem? Go see Jazel.
Enemy: Thieves who are targeting his properties and lowering their values. He has complained to Grand Master Owens for more guards for the homes outside the keep’s walls but Owens says his job is to protect the keep not the rats that huddle outside the door.
Secret: Jazel is paying a highly skilled criminal to target homes inside the keep to provoke Grand Master Owens to increase more guards.
Secret: Jazel set up lord Blackthorn with a peasant’s daughter in hopes he will focus more on the peasant’s needs and maybe build another wall around the girl’s family property (Jazel owns the deed)
Passion: investing, he knows that the keep is growing at an alarming rate economically and is trying to buy as much land around it as possible.
